Kermz-- great job on the R2 plug in. I had problems downloading if at first, but when I got it I was impressed. If at all possible I would like to request different colored one(s). I was thinking more views would be neat, and I had an idea. Is it possible to turn the droid's head's view with a slider like for transparancy? I think an animation with his head turning would look better, even if I just need him for the backround. Also, is there a way to change his front light to blue instead of red? That would be great. Thanks alot. Overall, we need more droids for backrounds of shots.

PS-- The backround buildings were great, even though I need to test them more...

you could probably change his front light by using the light bulb or phaser plug ins!

Yeah, Raider, I do use the light bulb but If the underlying light on R2 is red, and I put blue over it, It won't look very good. And if you make it really bright it looks unnatural for the lighting i'm dealing with.

try first masking off the light on r2 then put a light bulb over the mask - that way it should get rid of the red light, and thne u cna put a blue light on, without it going all icky...
